Moving Shadows

Part of the Derby City Council ESOL for Integration project, supported by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, Moving Shadows is a participatory storytelling project involving those who have recently migrated into Derby.

Created under UK Covid lockdown conditions, participants have learned English while engaging in cooking and storytelling activities. Using socially engaged processes, participants have produced a series of short films about their past and present lives and future ambitions.

QUAD’s ESOL project engages with communities where English is a second language through creative activities.
